6 Photos To Inspire You To Hike Camelback Mountain!

I’m STILL working on the Ultimate Arizona Bucket List, there is just so much to do here in Arizona…but you already know that I will be including plenty of hiking!

Camelback Mountain is for sure the BUSIEST and most popular mountain in Phoenix. Why is it so popular? It’s popular because it is home to two of the most difficult trails in the valley: Echo Trail (1.2 miles out and back) and Cholla Trail (1.5 miles out and back). Cholla Trail is the ‘easier’ hike but only because it’s a little longer and so you don’t feel as much elevation gain as Echo but it’s still really difficult! Both give you an incredible workout but only one really tests your mental grit. Echo Trail has you almost rock climbing and holding on to handrails to get yourself up.

Check out six of my favorite photos to inspire you to hike this epic mountain!

If you are heading to Rocky Point (also known as Puerto Peñasco in Mexico) and you want to stay in a beautiful place right next to the beach, then you need to check out Six Palms Villas! Although Six Palms Villas are technically located in Playa Encanto (about 25 minutes away from Rocky Point), it’s still close enough to drive into Rocky Point but also nice enough that you can just stay at your villa.

Six Palms Villas is the perfect spot to relax, enjoy delicious cocktails, and spend all day in the infinity pool, jacuzzi or beach!

Enthusiastic About Building The Next Generation of Hispanic Leaders in STEM!

I am beyond honored and thrilled to have been a part of a group of SHPE (Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers) members who attended a briefing on “Building the Next Generation of Hispanic Leaders in STEM” held by the Office of Public Engagement at the White House in Washington, DC and organized by SHPE’s Government Relations department.

It has been an immense privilege to be a SHPE member since 2010 and to be a witness to SHPE’s growth and impact throughout the years.

As the daughter of Mexican immigrants, I can honestly say that this is something I never thought I would have the opportunity to experience. Thank you SHPE for your commitment to helping so many of us succeed and for continuing to have conversations that matter.

Having a seat at the table is something I do not take lightly and I was proud to represent Honeywell in highlighting the value of building a diverse workforce.

The Ultimate Valle de Guadalupe Bucket List!

I am IN LOVE with my latest winery road trip. If you’ve never been to Valle de Guadalupe (aka Mexican Wine Country), then I highly encourage you to plan a trip! If you are a fan of wine, beautiful views and amazing Mexican food…then Valle de Guadalupe is for you!

I heard it’s referred to as the Napa of Baja and honestly I agree! I’ve been to Napa (and loved it, check out The Ultimate Napa Valley Bucket List) but I think Valle de Guadalupe has my heart. There’s something about going to the motherland and seeing all of the beauty that Mexico has to offer.

Check out all of my recommendations in Valle De Guadalupe (VDG) and let me know if I need to add others!
